My Trip Advisor Guide to Disney World

Oh my gosh, it’s Disney Plus Day, but I have to say that I miss going to Disney World. You can make fun of me all you like for being a Disney adult, but Disney played a big role in my college career. Which still feels very fresh, because now I’m in the thick of it again with graduate school.

That’s also the same reason I haven’t gone back, because I don’t know if I can afford it right now. So for Disney Plus Day, I am going to share my personal favorites when it comes to the parks, from my favorite places to grab a bite to my favorite rides, and some of my magic tips. If you get the chance to go, maybe my suggestions will add a little magic to your trip.

Decoding emails i can’t send by Sabrina Carpenter

So what I really wanted to do for this blog post was share a summer playlist, but the summer is slowly coming to an end since I start grad school next week. Plus, the truth is that I have had this album on repeat since it came out, so even if I were to curate a playlist now, it would probably incorporate all the songs on this album anyway.

At the end of the day, I have been a fan of Sabrina Carpenter since she was on Girl Meets World. I’m a fan of her, her music, and her acting career. She’s been a guest on my favorite podcast, and Sabrina was the first concert that I took my babysister to. So when Olivia Rodrigo dropped “Driver’s License” and her album, the Sabrina fan in me did not want to support her music at all. Not that she needed me to, since everyone knows who Olivia Rodrigo is now.

Since then, Sabrina has been pretty quiet and low-key. Sure, there has been a song here and there, but for the most part, this album has been the first time we’ve really heard from Sabrina since everything happened. So of course, I can’t wait to dissect it, and that is going to be the blog today.

Unpacking My Backpack Essentials

This is the last week I have before school starts, and I know because I have been getting emails from professors about assignments they want done by the time we arrive to our first class. It makes me laugh a little, because a week ago my sister and my boyfriend were picking on me when I brought up having summer homework in high school. Now here I am, doing more summer work. Anyway, while every teacher personalizes their own supply list for class, there are some essentials that every student needs to have handy. I thought I would open up my backpack and share mine for today’s blog post before they get packed away.

My Sorority Recruitment Survival Pack

When I was in undergrad, I would normally be preparing for sorority recruitment at this point in time. While recruitment isn’t something I miss (those were some long days, with some early mornings and some longer nights), I am grateful for the sorority experience that I had. Before I got to college, I never thought that Greek life was something that I would fit into. Despite that, it ended up being great in building my character and expanding my network. Based on my experience, I would definitely say that everyone should give it a try to see if it is something that would fit into their college experience.

Since I’m handing out that advice, I figured I might as well share some necessities that got me through the recruitment process in one piece. Whether you’re already in a sorority or looking to give the process a try, keep reading to find out what you need to keep in your backpack.

I Finally Finished Reading The Summer I Turned Pretty

This book has been a slight thorn in my side these past couple of weeks. Before the television show came out, I saw a trailer and said, “Oh, I’m going to read that before the show comes out.” But then it seemed like it came out the next day, so I barely had time to try to read it. It seemed like all of the podcasts that I normally listen to were talking about it the weekend after it was released. So in my dedication to not spoil this book before I read it, I pretty much have a lineup of podcast episodes to listen to once I watch the show. Now that I’ve finally finished reading it, I have to wait for my sister in order to start watching the series. We’re planning on having her come over so we can binge watch it together. To bide my time, I thought I would go through a discussion of the book. In my research, I found a fun reddit thread for a Taylor Swift inspired book club, and they chose this book back in June. Since I love Taylor Swift, I thought it would be fun to go through the questions for today’s blog post, especially since I’m also still waiting for the re-release for the rest of Taylor’s albums, or just more new music. I’ll take what I can get.

What My Lazy Day Looks Like

While today is National Lazy Day, I am probably not having a lazy day right now. If you’re reading this, I am probably at orientation for graduate school, because that is what I have on the schedule bright and early today. But for today’s post, let’s pretend that I am having a lazy day and what that would look like for me. You know, if I could’ve had one today.

Another Weekend of Wisdom

So my boyfriend had another wisdom tooth removed before the weekend started, and I believe that this is the last one. The loving, doting girlfriend that I am, I took the weekend off of work to make sure that he was going to be okay. If you’re reading this, it is probably obvious that we both survived the weekend, and if you’re interested in seeing how, you can keep reading.

Kaguya-sama: Love Is War

Grad school starts for me in less than a week, so I am in full back-to-school mode. That means that I am stocking up on supplies, loading up on sleep, and doing my best to enjoy my free-time while I have it. It’s part of the reason that I kind of dropped off the face of the earth this past week; I’ve been a bit busy. But today is Friday, so I want to share something that I truly have enjoyed watching. Recently, my sister and I finished watching the anime Kaguya-sama: Love Is War? and I wanted to share my thoughts. If you’re looking for a new anime to watch and you enjoy a romantic comedy as much as I do, you’re going to want to keep reading.

My 70’s Essentials Kit

We’re about to go into a new weekend, but you can tell by the title of this blog and the two earlier this week that my mind is still on the last one! Hopefully, as the weekend starts that changes, but it also might be unlikely. The forecast is that I am planning on working this weekend, which shouldn’t be too much of a shocker.

Anyway, for the last blog this week, I thought I would reflect on the ’70s themed party one last time, and share what I thought were the essentials in getting into the right mindset to groove the night away.

My 2022 Summer Goals for Living Better

Yesterday I woke up to an email saying that I have grad orientation in two weeks. I don’t know what your first inclination was, but mine was that summer is coming to an end. While that might make some people sad, I actually really enjoy being a student. With learning being one of my core values, I don’t think you’re growing if you’re not learning at least one new thing everyday.

While summer is the season with the longest days of the year, it is quickly wrapping up. And I’m sure that people are trying to squeeze in one last summer vacation or are preparing to shop for the school year, but I have some goals I want to complete before the season is over. That’s what I wanted to talk about today before I fully get into the back-to-school mindset. Keep reading to find out more.
